The TV highlights Wednesday night include:
Discovery Channel offers a tribute to Tim Samaras, Carl Young and Paul Samaras from the "Stormchasers" series. The three men were killed May 31 during an Oklahoma tornado outbreak. The program airs at 10 p.m., and it is an enhanced version of the special "Mile Wide Tornado: Oklahoma Disaster." "Tim, Carl and Paul were entrenched in the learning gained from the science of the storm," Discovery said. "Every spring since 2003, Carl chased storms with Tim, and together they tracked down over 125 tornadoes." Tim's son Paul, a videographer, "shared his father’s zest for science and exploration," Discovery added.
Jason Aldean and Kristen Bell host the CMT Music Awards at 8 p.m. from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. The live telecast on CMT and CMT.com will feature Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Florida Georgia Line.
"Dateline," at 8 p.m. on NBC, looks at the challenges facing Stacy and Jason Bingham, who have five children.

"The Lookout," at 10 on ABC, offers consumer tips on hiring locksmiths and TV repairmen. Another segment about the importance of thread counts is called "The Great Pillow Case Fight."
